Want This Creative Project? DIY Star Wars Origami

Origami is an ancient and venerated art form from Japan. Most of us have done origami at some point in our lives -- even if it was just folding a paper plane. We're familiar with the standard paper cranes and swans but recently the art form has become overrun with Star Wars imagery. While some of it is strictly for the professionals, there are some great designs you can make with your kids in the book Star Wars Origami.

Kids love origami and this book not only puts a fun spin on the art, it also rates each project for the degree of difficulty. That way your child can work his or her way from Youngling, to Padawan, to Jedi Knight, and even all the way to Jedi Master. I'll bet you never knew that you could become a Jedi Master of origami! Neither did I.
